Dr. Philip “Phil” Meyers Landau, 69 years old, of Pittsburgh, PA, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 11th, 2020, after a long and courageous battle with advanced heart failure. Surrounded by a family that adored him, he lived a life of unconditional love and kindness and will be forever missed by his devoted wife of almost 44 years, Myra; his three daughters, Lauren (David) Goldberg, Meredith (Rishi) Maheshwary, and Erica (Brian) Kelly; his grandchildren, Paige, Liza, Will, Emily, Jacob, and Brooke. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Ruth and Herbert Landau. Born on November 21, 1950, Phil grew up in Squirrel Hill and graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School. He was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of The Pennsylvania State University and The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Board certified in Internal Medicine, with a Geriatrics focus, Phil’s medical career spanned 37 years. He was a devoted physician who practiced at St. Margaret’s Hospital, HealthSouth Harmarville Rehabilitation Center, and Allegheny Health Network. He served as Medical Director at Longwood at Oakmont from 2003-2017. During the course of his career, Phil’s knowledge, professionalism, compassion, and dedication was always apparent in the level of love, attention, and care he gave to his cherished patients. At the heart of Phil’s life was his family, who will forever call him their best friend and hero. The embodiment of love, devotion, selflessness and integrity, Phil was the ultimate husband, father, father-in-law, and Pop-Pop whose greatest joy came from spending time with those he loved. As his family grieves this loss, they hold close Phil’s legacy of genuine and unparalleled kindness. Phil Landau made the world brighter.

Send Condolence

Dear Landau family, Nirmal and I feel very lucky that we came in contact with Dr. Phil Landau, the most amazing human being God sent on earth. I have lived in USA since 1971, and I can say it without even an iota of doubt that Phil was the kindest, gentlest, the most honorable, the most lovable person I have met. He had no ego, never saw even a frown on his loving and smiling face ever. We are so glad, our son Rishi married his middle daughter so we could know and had the pleasure of associating with through these ten years. I had grandiose designs to spend time more quality time with him after he fully retires, like a cruise, a family vacation together, invite him to Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio where Steeler’s Coach is to be honored and enshrined in August 2020. But it was not to be. Instead, it was God’s Will to enshrined Phil in our Hearts forever. We were fortune to have paid our last respects to him at the Ceremonies at Schugar Funeral home as well as at the Cemetery. Phil’s unconditional love will stay with Landau’s daughters, Wife of 47 years Myra in spirit forever and all the family and friends are indebted to him for showing us what the Life is All About! R. I. P. my friend!!!
